I am not sure I know how to do that.
I calm down and when I do, I see other possibilities.
As a retiree, I have an abundance of time, which I have never had before. I worry mostly that I am not using my time productively, yet I enjoy the freedom of not having a schedule. Finding the balance is what is challenging me now.
If i could reach this mindset, I am certain that my heart rate and blood pressure would decrease, and that I could be more relaxed, but I have a hard time changing my mindset to believe that I have enough time. Actually, the real problem may be that I don’t have enough energy. Lack of energy keeps, partly due from stress, keeps me from accomplishing things in the time I have, then my work snowballs, and I get more stress, less energy, and less time to do it all. It is a vicious cycle. So, I do have time. Time for work and me, I just have to see it and seize it.
I work less than I used to so time is normally abundant whatever perspective I take.
But then there’s the time I have left before I keel over. And that’s finite and reducing. I haven’t figured out how to live forever yet. But the closer I get to whatever the finish line is, the more I appreciate what is here now. And it’s the sense of scarcity, the limited time I have left, rather than abundance, that brings me to appreciate the present moment.
The heart rate tends to slow, I don’t feel so pressured to rush through actions/activities in genered
Your whole perception changes, you realize that moments and memories are precious. Nothing should be thought of as scarce, each and every little moment of time should cherished and lived to the fullest. We never know how much time we have, but we can’t live like our time is in short supply.
When time feels abundant, I tend to take proper care of myself.
I would wonder if I was being honest with myself. The issue for me is living 100% on right now. I am not sure about trying to stretch time in this dimension. There are dimensions where it is timeless (silent and still), but here, sound, movement and time is the backdrop.
It allows to let go of unhealthy, sad perspectives and feelings of coming short, in the same time it opens to joyful presence, allowing to be happy. Thank you for this question! An eye opener with a view on why. But why, for God´s sake, did I not change perspective??? I don´t want to have this in mind on the last day of my life. So, what I will do now is to promise to myself to change this NOW.
I really need to work on finding such a perspective. As a single mother, i usually go through life trying desperately to accomplish all that I can in any given day. It is very stressful feeling that there is never enough time. However, when I let that go, release my to do list and just “be”, it is immediately calming. Still trying to figure out how to accomplish this on a more regular basis.
I can procrastinate 🙂
I feel a sense of calm. As others have said I don’t feel so rushed, out of breath. I can stay in the present moment & be. Happy Friday All.❤️🙏
I relax instead of rush.
It frees up my thinking and helps me prioritize what’s best 4 today.
